FASTNET: Plein-Air Drawings at Freshkills Park is an exhibition of Plein-air drawings and ink studies made within a 20-foot shipping container in the Confluence section at the centre of Staten Island’s Freshkills Park. The FASTNET project, designed by James Powers, has brought artists of all ages to the developing park before it is fully open. These drawings represent visitors’ impressions of the scenery of the landfill-to-park as an ongoing dialogue between past, present, and future and prompt discussion about the human-nature relationship and what is “natural” in a completely engineered topography.
